THE RIVER OF LIFE-THE JORDAN
In my DVD series, “Finding Your True North,” I speak about the three flows of thought that you can trace from Genesis to Revelation. They are the “Scarlet Stream” (Sin), “The Crimson Tide” (Blood), and “The River of Life” (The Jordan River). Why do I call the Jordan by this name? Because wherever it flows, life flourishes. This narrow body of fresh water flows from Mount Hermon (north) for almost 200 miles to the Dead Sea (south). Its headwaters are the Banias, the Dan, and the Hasbani Rivers. The word “Jordan” refers to the “descending Dan River,” or “down from Dan,” the city from which it descends.
